    They were OGs. I have a pair of BFGs but I had stopped having Eye issues with Goodrs before I got them.

    I am a big fan of Visors, particularly because they help with the sweat issue. The sweat tends to do the same thing run down and drip off the bill. So I have some interchangeable lens Tifosi's, a pair of store brand Photochromatic biking glasses from performance bike, a pair of Revo's and...

    I hope you enjoy your goodr's initially I didn't like the pair I bought, but now their my primary sunglasses. Hadn't thought about riding on ATT. That would be a good flat ride. On the other side of town Umstead could probably be a good ride with some really decent hill training. Nope it's...

    ATTQOTD: I've never done a tri, but I really want to. I have pretty easy access to a pool (We have a natatorium as part of the gym facilities at work) and I swam competitively growing up. I am terrified of the bike part (1 because of the bike expense, I have some nice mountain bikes so I...

    NY Marathon

    Wow with only 500 spots and how difficult it is to get into NY I'd guess it will be sold out in minutes.

    What’s on your running play list?

    I used to listen to a lot of podcasts when I ran. I have two Disney Running Playlists. The first is for long runs and includes some non Disney Stuff. I really need to remove Rainbow connection from this playlist as the song makes me want to sit down, not run...

    ATTQOTD: It depends on the length of the loop but I'd be inclined to go with my treadmill. It's got video runs from around the world and the incline adjusts based on the real world. I went through a series running around Greece and am currently running/hiking up Mt Kilaminjaro (jambo...

    I am right there with you. Trying to loose 20+ pounds, currently down about 6, but hungry a lot and ever runs since I've started has been harder/slower than I'd like

    Marathon Weekend 2020

    I swam competitively growing up, and we periodically ran for cross training. I hated every step. Jump ahead many years and it's 2011. Some friends mention they are taking a couples trip to WDW so one of them can run the marathon. That Jan was going to be DW and I's 13th anniversary so I...

    runDisney - Inclusive for All Abilities?

    I from what I've read there were two issues with the London Marathon: 1. Water stops and other areas of the race had shut down before these runners had passed even though they were running under event pace. Disney does do a great job of ensuring that everyone gets food and a medal and...

    Marathon Weekend 2020

    Glad to hear that the tumors are shrinking. As others have said best is subjective. For us when DW finished Chemo minimizing superfluous walking was one of our key desires. ( I realize that may be a lower priority given that you're there for a half marathon) As a result we chose Beachclub...

    Wow, you are ripped in this picture. My favorite group picture. My wife snapped this after I passed her in the Chicago marathon. It was the best trained I've ever been for a race and I enjoyed the whole thing. What's better than Bacon?

    ATTQOTD: Tobacco Road Marathon a couple years ago. It was a perfect storm of bad race stuff. I went into the race knowing I was slightly undertrained, but I still tried to hold my target pace, it was warmer than usual, I didn't properly fuel and I had GI issues. The first 10 or 12...

    Apple Watch 3 and Garmin 235 although my daughter has pretty much claimed the 235... I've been really intrigued by the Active Training on the New Garmin watches. I am curious how much more accurate training load data is with the inclusion of Barometric Altimeter data. I'm sure it depends...

    Marathon Weekend 2020

    Wow this was a great SAFD. I really enjoyed reading everyone's responses there was a lot of head nodding and "yeah, I love that too" as I read. It's a cop out but my answer would be a firm "it depends" For Food and General Exploration WS hands down. It's easy to spend a day just wandering...

    I think that's one of the hardest things for people to get. Both my kids run XC in school and they both have wanted to do Disney or other races. I usually build training plans out for them that build from where they are to the distance they are racing. In both cases for their first non...

    So I have a Apple Watch3 and used NRC on it for a while. When the 3 was first launched i noticed that NRC was kind of buggy. I had it auto-pause or the app just die in the middle of 2 different long runs. I've since switched to just using apples native fitness app. For me I don't do...

    Attqotd: I'd probably be inquisitive. I'd be curious what's driving them to undertake this and would probably try and encourage them in a way that doesn't get them hurt.

    Dopey Shirts Long or Short Sleeve?

    Actually other Disney Races have/ Had Short sleeve shirts too. From What I remember EEC Challenge, The Disneyland Half Races and Princess weekend all had/have short sleeve shirts. Was going to suggest looking at the costs for NYC, Chicago or other similar size races but I see others have...

    I am not sure. I have a couple of smaller races where I have placed in my age group. Disneyland was probably my highest half finish in a large race. I was 176th out of about 15k overall. My worst finish was probably the princess 10k. I walked with my daughter came in 11290 out of about 12000.
